(laughter) >> jon: well, i guess the guys who were bribed don't think there's anything suspicious in the death of the guy who blew the whistle on the company providing the bribes, i'm satisfied.

are at the home of the former "news of the world" showbiz reporter sean hoare. his death is being described as unexplained but not suspicious. nick be robinzon, bbc news, westminster. >> the sun newspaper owned by rupert murdoch's news international has suffered a huge attack by computer hackers. anyone trying to go to the website was turned to another website. posted reports on the company's websites fallsly claiming that rupert murdoch had been found dead. well, earlier we spoke to a professor from the democracy institute. this is likely to be an insightful one. >> i think the surprise that we can in a perverse sense look forward to is that the murdoches i think in a comparative sense be somewhat forth right, somewhat comparatively insightful than we would have expected because their attempts to say as little as possible in recent days and weeks have failed and failed miserablely. they will belatedly see the sense in becoming more forthcoming. they will be more forth right compared to rebecca brooks if she does show up because of the huge legal cloud now directly over her head, it will be

about the phone hacking at "news of the world"? >> first of all, sean hoare who cracked under the pressure, he did drink too much and died last week, he started it, and it was presented -- i just bought a bar in the south of england about nine months ago which is where hugh grant taped me. i was semi retiring from journal into. and the guardian presented it as a fantastic story. it was the british watergate and i was offered the chance to be part of it oovps. the whole point was, if we can label our former bosses, rebekah brooks, andy coulson who are arrested, not criminal masterminds but engaged in a media empire where criminality was rif, if that media empire got david cameron elected as the british prime minister, that's a good story. >> i have a break coming up. since you mentioned rebekah brooks and andy coulson, both former editors of "news of the world," do you have any doubt that they knew phone hacking was going on at that paperer? >> i have no doubt whatsoever. piers morgan was also my editor, but in that time in 1994-'5, it wasn't illegal. you could sit outside some

in the death of sean hoare, a former "news of the world" reporter who'd been an early whistleblower in the scandal. hoare was found dead monday at his home north of london. more now on today's hearings and the murdoch media empire. we're joined, from london, by john burns of "the new york times," and from new york, by david folkenflik, who covers the media for npr. so, john burns, what struck you most about the murdoch's message today? >> well, it was a heavily lawyered performance but for all that i thought it was pretty skilled. the lawmakers who were a lot more brief, better briefed themselves than the parliamentary committees in london and britain usually are, they are not... they are a shadow of their counterparts on capitol hill but today i thought that the lawmakers did pretty well but they didn't lay too many gloves on the murdochs. i think that it was greatly to their advantage in a paradoxical way that mr. marbles, i think his name is, entered from stage right with his custard pie or his shaving foam pie, whatever it was because it presented rupert murdoch who is not altog

new day drops a new bombshell. on monday, it was the death of sean hoare, the first journalist to go on the record pointing the finger directly at former "news of the world" editor andy colson accusing him of actively encouraging phone hacking. police say his death is unexplained, but not suspicious. and in an ironic twist, the company accused of hacking got hacked themselves. murdoch's son paper had to quickly remove this fake headline on its paper last night. today's story makes no mention of parliament or their boss, rupert murdoch. the questioning is expected to take about three hours, but don't expect any detailed answers to direct questions about phone hacking. all three have said they will not answer questions that could in some way jeopardize the ongoing criminal investigation. matt? >> all right. stephanie gosk in london this morning. stephanie, thanks so much. michael wolff is the author of "the man who owns the news: inside the secret world of rupert murdoch." he is also the editorial director of "ad week" magazine. good to see you. talk about the dynamic. one of the bigge
